We dropped in here for a bite to eat whilst visiting the garden Center. We had a really tasty panini and homemade soup. The new owner Kate was really welcoming and chatty. The coffees were great and I loved the funky new decor. Would definitely recommend.

Dropped in to visit the garden Center and animal park and decided to stay for lunch. The new owner Kate is lovely! Really chatty and very helpful with local information. We had lovely homemade soup and paninis which were all freshly made and really tasty. The place is really comfy with corner benches and funky decor. Will definitely be coming back and recommend the soups and cakes.

We used to love going to Elm Kitchen and the farm and tried it for lunch recently under the new owners. They seem very nice but the coffee was lukewarm, menu not very interesting (a few paninis, brunch only served until 11.30). Coleslaw had too many onions in it. The kids menu also doesn't have much on offer and the kids sandwich was thrown in a bowl. My panini was also not warm enough with the cheese not melted properly. very off putting (and unhygienic) was that the owners dog runs around the cafe and tries to get your attention and owner strokes the dog in between serving food.
Didn't try the cakes - didn't look appetising.

Needs a lot of improvement.

Elm kitchen is in a league of their own... independent, family run business Jacqui and Georgia and the team have created a wonderful oasis in Sutton Green!
They only serve home made food to the freshest and highest standards on beautiful plates with a warm welcoming smile!
Their home made sausage rolls and scotch eggs and multiple varied cakes have kept my boys (and me!!) going through school and uni!
There’s something fresh and exciting every day to enjoy whatever time of day you visit! And they make a mean double macchiato too... delicious coffee every time !!!
Their outside catering is always innovative and tasty and exceptionally good value!
We will miss you all but wish you every happiness and success in whatever venture you decide upon...keep in touch!

Have driven past this place do many times and never been in. However I was prompted to today as I had discovered that there was a little farm and a nice coffee shop.
My 20 month old granddaughter adored the farm but we needed some refreshment so we went to the cafe and enjoyed an amazing sausage roll, a slice of cake, a gingerbread bunny and a mineral water. The whole morning cost me around a tenner. Absolute bargain
